Snow Plowing with John Deere 2320 Equipped with a Rear Blade
This is me plowing our gravel road with a John Deere 2320 equipped with a Frontier RB2072 rear grading blade and iMatch quick connect system. I have gotten quite good at plowing since I live on a "class 6" road, which means the town considers it abandoned and won't plow it, although I do still pay the taxes for it. Anyway, I found it difficult to plow with the bucket, so I needed a blade. The front plow with hydraulics cost about $1,800. Since I am cheap, I bought the rear grader blade for $650. It does a pretty good job as you can see in the video. The drawbacks are with a rear blade, you need to drive through the snow first, so this limits the depth of snow you can tackle, (although you can push some of it away with the FEL bucket). Also, it doesn't raise very high, so sometimes if you go in a ditch the blade digs in and prevents you from backing up.. so you need to drop the blade, move it then back out (the iMatch quick connect is a huge plus here). The rear blade however, can do double duty in the summer pushing soil around the garden and will help spread gravel also. All in all, I am happy with this set-up for snow removal, but the rear blade does have limitations as compared to a front plow. www.swampyacresfarm.com

First 30 seconds or so is the guinea hens hiding under a tarp. Then more snow clearing of 2 feet depth, no problem in the tractor. The jacket is a gore-tex desert camo pattern. Perfect in winter...?

Trim plowing a long driveway with a 6.5' Myers Plow with a John Deere 2320 two days after a 5-6" snowfall at high speed. R4 tires no loading, no chains or weight on the rear of this machine and it handled great. Sorry about the shakiness of the video
